Our Core Beliefs:
The Boys & Girls Clubs provide:
A safe place to learn and grow;
Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals;
Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences;
Hope and opportunity.
Our Impact Strategic Plan:
Our Impact 2013 strategic plan calls for the Boys & Girls Club Movement to focus on three essential outcomes for Club members: academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character and citizenship. While they are separate in many ways, they add up to the most essential outcome of all – young people who are prepared to enter the adult world as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Boys & Girls Clubs provide young people with:
-A safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone.
-A chance to play, have fun, laugh and learn.
-Opportunities to build new skills that raise each child’s belief that heor she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.
-Ongoing relationships with caring adults and connections to new friends in a positive environment, reinforcing a sense of belonging, personal accountability, civility and civic responsibility.
-Generation-changing programs that support a commitment to learning, positive values, healthy habits and high expectations for success as an adult.
